flexispot xl6powerliftrecliner review 1

REVIEW – Recently, I have been looking to purchase a recliner for my 79-year-old mother. Her current couch has become extremely uncomfortable, and she has trouble getting in and out of it.

Troubadour KI Crossbody 9

REVIEW – Recently, my wife (Cheri) and I went on a 10-day whirlwind tour of the UK. It involved a lot of bus travel, changing hotels, and walking. She dreaded lugging her oversized purse all over England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. That’s when we were offered the Troubadour KI Crossbody Bag to review. While the

Cherry Xtrfy K5V2 Compact mechanical keyboard review – Is it the budget GOAT?

cherry xtrfy 1

REVIEW – In my trips down the many, many rabbit holes associated with mechanical keyboard fanaticism, I’ve heard Cherry was the GOAT when it comes to keyboard switches. They are the gold standard that all other switch makers try to emulate. In my early work life, I first became aware of Cherry maintaining POS equipment.

Synido K25 13

REVIEW – Like many middle-class American kids, I was forced to learn piano growing up. Even though I hated this at first, I eventually came around and also elected to play in the school band, and have loved to learn and play new instruments ever since.

Withings ScanWatch Nova review – My Apple Watch now sits in a drawer

Withings ScanWatch Nova 4

REVIEW – What defines a watch? Years ago, that would have been silly to ask. Today, however, it’s a legitimate question. In nine short years, the most popular watch in the world—by far—is the Apple Watch. But is it really a watch? To me, a watch is a mechanical time-keeping device worn either in a
